Are you on a job hunt? Or are you just looking for some new lippies that won't attract the wrong kind of attention at work? After picking out the perfect outfit that looks smart and professional, you need to complete the outfit with a flattering lip shade. 

We always love a good excuse to buy new lipsticks so here’s five of our job interview-ready/safe-for-work picks for the taking!

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Seduction

When going for a job interview, you would hear the advice to wear neutral makeup shades way too often. While that is tried-and-tested sound advice, this does not mean that we can’t still have fun with what we wear. We want to look confident and put-together, but we also want to showcase our personality.

So if you’re into the trendy liquid lipsticks, try Revlon's Seduction, a warm nude shade that won't make you look pale or washed out. Temptation is also a lovely good-vibes-pink that's not too bright! Lightweight yet moisturizing, this lip color line comes out matte with just a hint of shine.


Nichido Juicy Lips Lipstick in Hawaiian Punch

This is a steal at only P88! It's a neutral pink brown that should look lovely on morena skin. This Nichido line actually has a lot of wearable color suitable for work, ranging from oranges, pinks, and nudes.

Happy Skin #PrintsMadePretty Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie in Girl Boss

Stress can cause dry lips, so this long-wearing, hydrating lipstick is a good choice. This Happy Skin x Plains & Prints collab version has an ultra-matte finish in a wearable medium mauve shade. It has the perfect name too, Girl Boss!

Nars Audacious Lipstick in Jane

Jane is personally my go-to creative neutral. When I’m not in the mood for mauves and nude pinks, I reach for this Nars lipstick which is known for its great color payoff. The only non-matte in our list, the shade described as "terracotta rose" glides on smoothly in a single stroke.

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte in Touch of Spice

Matte lipsticks can be non-drying as well, and one great example is this creamy version. The bold color brings to mind warm spices as the name suggests. Touch of Spice is also a great dupe for the popular Kylie Jenner lip look.
